Report From The Tower
"As it was with the children of Israel before you who came out of Egypt but who perished in the wilderness, unable to enter the land, so shall it be with My children of this generation. I gave this generation an unsealing and an understanding of my promises regarding the third day: refuge from trouble, the coming man-child, the greater works to come and the fulfillment of the prophecy of the feast of Tabernacles. This was a type of promised land, available for you to enter. Yet, you have failed to enter in because of unbelief. Most of you remained where they were in their second day, harlot churches. Many of you feared that your children would be spiritually lost without any church program. So these never even came out of their Egypt. I will bring those very children into the promised land of the third day, but you will not enter in. Others left their churches, but did not gather to the refuge places I directed them to go to by My Spirit. They refused to gather together and chose solitary places or comfortable places. Those few who did gather together by Me to the areas of refuge brought their second day, harlot church traditions with them, and my refuge locations were compromised. And so, this generation shall perish in the wilderness and will not enter my land. This generation shall be trapped in the wilderness of the great tribulation, but I will save a remnant, and their children shall enter in."
"7And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 8Yet will I have a remnant, that ye may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries. And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols, and they shall lothe them selves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations. 10And they shall know that I am the Lord, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them."
I remember that when I received this word in 2009, I was very downcast about it for three days. On the third day, the Lord spoke to me and said:
"why are you downcast"? I said, "Lord, you are saying now it will be many years before your church will wield the iron rod in the third day." The Lord replied. "That is correct, but why are you downcast? It is the hour of the prophet. You will wield the iron rod".
That word is now fulfilled, beginning with the morning of January 6, 2013 and continuing on to my prayer time this morning. The authority upon me to pray has now reached an unprecedented level. I am now abiding in the third day anointing, with the increased glory of the Lord.
The iron rod is now in my hands.
The Lord had revealed a few other things to me just a few days prior to this on October 15, 2009:
"I the Lord have designed My church to suit my good pleasure, and men have departed from My wishes as they have elevated the desires of their hearts over and above the desire of My heart. They have among them men who desire to be chief, and others who wish to be like the rest of the world around them. All believers in your nation have "a pastor", and so, those for whom you intercede desire "a pastor", so as not to be peculiar in appearance. They are uncomfortable when others in their community regard them as different or strange. I the Lord have called my people to be a peculiar people, and I will abide with those who abide with Me. I will abide with the one who keeps My word and My commandments. Where the function of the church is proper, but the structure of the church is aberant, I will put upon that church no special measure of My presence and My power. As my presence is experienced in the harlot church, so will I be experienced in the church for which you intercede, for the structure alone is sufficient to defile the whole lump."
This desire for a pastor who, like a king, will rule over the church of God, is something that is pervasive now. The people love it this way. It is into this environment that the glory of God is making an entrance. What will the result of His arrival be as He comes suddenly to His house?
There are many who are talking about the present wave of glory that has arisen upon the prophets. They have been saying "it is coming...it is coming...it is coming". Meanwhile, it is here! It has arrived! The thing is........they have heard the word about the wave of glory because it is an exciting thing. It is a thing that everyone wants and has yearned for. It is a great, feel good word.
They have missed seeing the wave of double judgements that has already begun because they hid their faces from this prophecy and stopped up their ears. It is anything but a feel good word. They did not want to see it or hear about it, so they are not aware of it as it is sweeping in upon them.
I have been telling you all for many years that when the glory comes, you will need to go for it! You need to fast and pray like you have never prayed, just like a surfer trying to get up to speed because this huge wave of double judgements is coming behind it. I have been exhorting you all since November that we all need to climb up higher. You can only do this through spirit led fasting, prayer and time in the word. If you get up enough glory speed, you will surf this giant wave. If you stay where you are, just waiting for it, it will swamp you.
One more advisory:
I have seen an incredible spike in demonic activity in the last two days. You need to plead the power of the blood of Jesus and decree your faith in it over every single person, place, or thing that is called yours. Do it every single day. This is how the Haitian Christians have had to live for years, and so it is now upon us too.
One more thing: if you think that you are under a curse if you fail to pay your tithe or pay first-fruits or any other type of legally oriented thing that you may be doing, you are obligated to keep the whole law and you will not be able to stand during this time of arrival of the glory. Some plague will take you down or out. You cannot be holding a belief that you are under some curse and be safe under the blood at the same time. If you have believed this about failing to tithe, you have a defective doctrine. This false teaching has been proliferated all over the harlot church in recent years.
(Giving has been overcomplicated. Give as directed by the Holy Spirit. Where you have been unable to give, ask the Lord for seed to sow. Where you have sinned by failing to give, repent and ask forgiveness. Give abundantly.)
Bring yourself and your family under the power of the blood of Jesus and NOTHING ELSE.
I have said this on radio many times: I don't care what you do to worship. Many people do many different types of things. The question is, why do you do that thing? What do you think will happen to you if you fail to do it for even one time? Do you trust in the doing of that thing to somehow justify you before God?
Matthew Stephen and Stephen Bening went to Branson, Missouri, made decrees and declarations prophetically and obtained the last of the four red sticks on December 13, 2012. The Lord had previously indicated that the weekend of the time that is one month from that date: January 11-13, 2013, would be the time of commencement of the red sticks judgements. Many apocalyptic judgements are looming between that time and the end of April, 2013. I do not believe that any delay is forthcoming this time. The election of Obama over every objection of the harlot church indicates to me that God has slammed the door on further prayers for delaying tactics. We will now have to fully drink the cup as a nation and as a church.
This morning, all of you can see that TIME HAS COME TODAY, just as the Chambers Brothers sang about back in the mid sixties. Everything that we have been prophesying about has come today and is coming in today. The headlines are all in red today about the present intentions of your government here in the United States. It is quite obvious that the world is building to a great uproar in this land. Lines are forming up on both sides as godless people on the right and godless people on the left are squaring off and the discussion is reaching a level of vitriol and threatened violence heretofore not seen. Some say they are speaking for God, but they have no fruit of the Spirit. There is not a hint of gentleness or self control in any of them who say they speak for Jesus. Paul encountered an uproar of people in Ephesus and we can read about it in Acts 19. The uproar had ceased by Acts 20, where we find Paul's response to it: he left Ephesus and went over to Macedonia. There is absolutely nothing you can say or do to people who are in an uproar and ready to riot, and mark my words, this nation is ready to explode into riot and civil violence, just as I have prophesied for 22 years. Paul would have nothing to do with it and neither will I.
God's glory is now being poured out on His prophets. We have the iron rod. Perhaps a few of you will wield it too. But what is that iron rod? Do any of you think of it as a natural weapon? Do you think that we will use it to attack people toward the accomplishment of the building up of some temporal or political kingdom? Do you think that it will be used to build up anything in this present world or buttress the kingdoms of this world?
Jesus walked on the Earth and when He was here for those three and one-half years, he did not concern himself with the kingdoms of this world. He left Caesar totally alone. Many people tried to entice Jesus and draw him into the fray they desired to have with Rome, and he would have none with it. He told them to take Rome's money and render it to Caesar. They put a tax on him and he paid it. They came to arrest him and he did not resist. He directed Peter to put away his sword as Peter tried to fight to deliver Jesus from the Roman soldiers. Later, before Pilate, Jesus decided to answer one of Pilate's questions even though he had given no defense of himself with respect to other accusations. Pilate wanted to know about this identity of Jesus as a King of the Jews, and Jesus straightened him out. Jesus said:
"My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."
There was a time and a place for the defense of America and American patriotism. There was a time when good men could not remain silent, lest evil triumph. That time is long past. I believe, just as Matthew Stephen does, that Ronald Reagan gave a good faith attempt to turn this nation toward righteousness. Since that time, all efforts have been abated and all power has been given over to those who would lead this nation into oppressive darkness. It matters not whether they spout Republican or Democratic ideologies. All is wickedness. All is darkness. There is now not a hint of righteousness in the land. There is nothing for the righteous, whomever they are, to rise up to defend. There is no evil yoke to be thrown off as another evil yoke will simply replace it.
So we have it, that deep and gross darkness has covered the Earth and the nation. Now, the glory of the Lord is beginning to flow through the prophets of the Most High God. We must now walk EXACTLY like Jesus walked. This is a different hour now, unlike any that have ever befallen this nation. We must have no connection or concern with the kingdom affairs of the this present world. We are ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. We must set our eyes and our minds on things above, for our battle is not with flesh and blood at this time. We are involved in a purely spiritual war and spiritual weapons are the only weapons that will avail anything in this hour. We have no involvement with those who wish to rise up with those who wish to participate in this present uprising and uproar. We separate from all those who wish to fight in supposedly patriotic causes. We separate ourselves from all of those who are involved in any instigation of the masses. Tax us and we will pay it. Confiscate our goods and we will suffer it. The Lord is our defense. We will not be moved. Neither are we going before men to directly rebuke them any longer. The Lord has told me to be silent before the pastors and the bishops. I am not to go into their offices any more to bring correction. The Lord will now be the one to raise the ruckus. The Lord will do the striking. The Lord will bring the judgement. I will be still now and see the glory of the Lord as He goes before me to do those things that I have decreed.
Yes, it is true that we have now withdrawn all permissions for use and distribution of our radio programs and our writings. We withdraw all association with all of those who are being carried away with this present uproar. We will have nothing to do with all of those who seek a present battle with any of those on this Earth who are preparing to fight it out in the cities and in the country. We rebuke all those who desire a fleshly war. This is not our kingdom and it is not our fight. We are the apostles of the Lord. We have been sent to do His bidding and no other.
